Mea Culpa

DID YOU KNOW: Asylum seekers, -our brothers and sisters from Mexico and Central America- present themselves at the United States’ territorial borders, desperately seeking to assimilate with a nation that will offer law and order, protection, dignity, and liberty -since we will not go into their countries to insure it- when indeed, the United States’ foreign and economic polices have created environments where terror, violence, and corruption flourish in the first place? #NAFTA #CAFTA

Not Illegal

We ache, don’t we

Our trudging, persevering waves

Our praying to not fade away into the vintage

We make you hurt, all we want

The warmth of some sun wrapped so permanently around us

That the days of being exposed and cold….

And alone

In the heat

Be behind us

Can you do that?
